Introducing Andrew Zimmerman who draws with scissors (above) and a saw. Yep, a saw! He is working in that sweet spot between painting and sculpture. Check 'em out below.
He cuts strips from wood panels – freehand (i.e. drawing with a saw) which gives them an irresistible irregularity – then reassembles these with a little breathing room between the strips and glues them down to a new panel.
I get the sense of "expansion" -- but they also remind me of wood grain – all fauxed up, but still made of wood. All dressed up in a coat of shiny enamel paint.
2007.04, 2007, Acrylic and enamel on panel, 52" x 35" (detail)
And here, some more paper collages...
